Filed under: Early America,Wars — John Maass @ 8:27 am

Interpreters at Colonial Williamsburg’s Magazine and Guardhouse help guests develop a more complex and complete understanding of eighteenth-century military tactics and how reality varies from popular mythology.

The on-line version of Colonial Williamsburg Journal has an article entitled “Of Rocks, Trees, Rifles, and Militia: Thoughts on Eighteenth-Century Military Tactics,” by Christopher Geist, professor emeritus at Ohio’s Bowling Green State University.
